// Note: This object is an instance of a `DuBinary` class, which contains all information and a string representation of the original binary file
var execFile = DuBinary.toFile(executable);
//Now, the file exists in the file system, and execFile is an ExtendScript File object.
// The `DuBinary.toFile()` method extracts the file to the Application Data folder by default.
execFile.fsName; // C:\users\duduf\appData\Roaming\DuAEF\icon.png (Example on Windows)
//You can specify the output file name. (Add a # before the include word)
include preset.ffx.jsxinc
var presetFile = DuBinary.toFile(preset,"C:/test/test_preset.ffx");
presetFile.fsName; // C:\test\test_preset.exe");
